You just said (okay, screamed) YES! You're so excited to get to work on making that secret Pinterest board you’ve been working on for several months turn to reality. But where to start? Let’s face it, a ring on your finger doesn’t magically turn you into a wedding planning expert. Between YES and I DO there are 5,523 decisions to be made and honestly no app or general checklist is going to guide you through them all. If you are considering a wedding planner (and you probably are since you are reading this) then you are headed in the right direction. But what should you look for in a wedding planner? First and foremost, it is important to work with someone you feel you can trust. A wedding planner’s first responsibility to make you feel like everything is under control and going to be ok (because it is!) Planning a wedding involves a lot of big decisions, big emotions, and a significant investment of resources (both time and money). You need someone who is in your corner and has your best interest at heart. You can plan the wedding of your dreams, making memories with your friends and family and not lose your mind in the process. I bet you will even have as much fun planning your wedding as you do on your big day itself!
